New Ippity is HERE!

It's time for some cute new Ippity stamps, and a release day blog hop featuring all kinds of fun projects created by Ippity Chicks.  To follow the hop, go to the Ippity blog HERE where you will find the list of all the participating blogs... you won't want to miss a single one! 
 Today I am sharing 2 cards made with some of the new stamps being released tomorrow morning.


For the first card I used Oh My Darling - a wonderful vintage style set.  I pulled out my Tim Holtz paper stash for this card, finding the perfect match in his Crowded Attic collection.  The images are stamped in black with brown added to all the edges and corners for a distressed look.  I finished it off by adding some bakers twine and a button.  The images are matted on Early Espresso card stock from SU, which is also used for the card base.  I will add some ivory paper inside the card for writing, and may even add some more of these great images there as well.
The second card is made using the adorable and funny new set called Naughty. Nice. Not Sure.  I love all the fun phrases in this set!  I plan to check one of the options before I send this one off... which one will depend on the recipient of course!

 I used some more of my Tim Holtz stash on this card, this time from his Seasonal collectionl  I stamped the Santa on white and colored him using markers before cutting him out, and then added stickles for some sparkle.  The list is a second stamp also cut out from white cardstock, then attached using dimensionals. 

Don't forget to check out all the other creations on the blog hop... and ALL the new sets available on the Unity web site tomorrow... just click HERE, choose me as your chick, and shop away:)

Here is the list of all the blogs in the hop... have fun!
